You would be aware that earlier this year the Catholic Church in Australia committed publicly to joining the Redress Scheme. Last week the Arch-bishop signed the Deed of Participation on behalf of the Archdiocese of Brisbane, which was another step in bring-ing healing to those who have been wounded by abuse in the Church. Claims for re-dress will be made against the Corporation rather than an individual parish, so you need not be concerned about financial implications at a local level. You might wish to make your parishioners aware that the Archdiocese has signed on and encourage them to en-trust survivors to the intercession of St Mary MacKillop as we have done in the Cathedral.

From Father Nev

2-19 – 6th Sunday in Ord Time – Four blessings and four woes

This week we hear a different version of the Beatitudes from Luke preached by Jesus on the plain. This was opposed to Matthew’s account which was part of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount series. This version has four blessings and four woes. Do these blessings ring true for us? Are we actually truly happy when we a spiritually poor? Most of us in Australia are spiritually poor. How many of us are really in touch with God? Do we take time to be still and listen to the voice of the Spirit? Do we have a desire to be spiritually hungry? Do we even want a relationship with God or are too pre-occupied with material wealth, gluttonous for pleasurable things and pandering to the values of the world? Are we happy when we go through moments of suffering or challenge? Do we see these as moments of opportunity to make changes in myself and see things from God’s perspective? Are we happy when we follow the teachings of the Church knowing we will be opposed? Do we oppose abortion, euthanasia and contraception? Do we promote the flourishing of life and families or are we prophets for the culture of death? As Catholics and Christians are we confident of sharing the divine truth knowing full well we will be discriminated against? When a contrary view is expressed do we assert the Church’s view? When someone blasphemes God’s name or his person, can you easily say, “I find that comment disrespectful”? Take time this week to reflect on these statements. Just a reminder, we’re having Courageous (Our first Encounter Night with God) at 7pm, Sat. Don’t forget to have your say after each Mass for the Plenary Council 2020 parish Listening Sessions. Remember too if you can’t stay, there is a box at the back table to place your submissions. Finally Youth Group this Sunday is going from 2-4pm in the Morgan Howe Centre.

Have a spirit filled week

Fr Nev!!

Christmas Message from Archbishop Mark Coleridge


Brisbane Archdiocese Video Series – The Mass



2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Many historians consider the Reformation one of those epoch changing events in the history of the Western world. But what does it mean for people in Australia 500 years later? Was the Reformation just a series of pointless disputes which have little relevance to the church today? Or is the church today the living legacy of the Reformation, and if so, what does this mean for us? Join us as we ask these questions together.
